Understanding McKinney’s Landscape Watering Plan

June 16, 2013 7:18 pm

Summer is in full swing and so is the time to be responsible when watering our landscapes.  Beginning June 1, 2013, the City of McKinney implemented the following guidelines:


  • Landscape watering with an irrigation system is allowed one day a week if needed, and not between 10 a.m. and 6 p.m. You can water on your residential trash pickup day.
  • Watering by hand, soaker hoses or drip irrigation is allowed for foundations and first year plantings of trees or shrubs up to two hours per day.
  • No use of water that allows runoff or other water waste.
  • No landscape watering during any form of precipitation.
  • New landscapes may be watered as necessary for 30 days from the date of installation with proof of purchase or certificate of completion https://beit-mirkahat.com/cialis-סיאליס/.
  • Registered and properly operated ET Controller systems may operate without restrictions.


The city is also promoting the “Water My Yard” program that has been established as a tool to assist you in determining an adequate amount of supplemental water that is needed to maintain healthy grass. The North Texas Municipal Water District, in partnership with Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service (AgriLife), launched this water efficiency tool at www.WaterMyYard.org. Enter your location and type of irrigation system, and the site will use current conditions to compute the amount of time your sprinkler system will need to run. You can also receive weekly emails.

And finally, the city is also offering these current rebate programs:

Only retrofitted irrigation systems installed before 9/1/07 are eligible.
